Create a unique party for you and your guests when you book a Charleston Charter Cruise Boats experience with us. We offer a variety of custom options that will give you and your guests the occasion and experience of a lifetime.

We have been offering Charleston boat charters for many years. We have had the opportunity to cater for different clients and many events including birthday parties, kids parties, wedding receptions, educational cruises and even wine tastings.

Food and Drinks

Delight your group with an authentic Oyster Roast, BBQ, or Low Country Boil on an uninhabited island. The festivities begin after boarding “The Palmetto” with a cruise around the harbor while you enjoy refreshments of your choosing. Upon arriving at the barrier island, the boat is beached and your guests step out onto the sandy shore, where they will indulge in the Low Country cuisine and be dazzled by the breathtaking views of Charleston’s sunset-silhouetted steeples. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?

Our chefs are professionals and are truly amazing at what they do. Enjoy our mouth-watering cuisine which is offered on all of our Charleston boat charters.

Catered Day Trips

Perhaps your group would prefer a day trip including a catered picnic or box lunch on Morris Island. Other catering options are available by request, so please let us know if you have any special dietary needs.

Spend the day out on the water in the Charleston sunshine. Our day trips are very popular with school groups and children’s birthday parties too.

Dining Out Like Never Before

Experience a new twist on “dining out.” Have The Palmetto transport you and your group to a local restaurant. Wedding parties, family reunions, or groups for other special occasions are all welcome aboard.

This is a fun and exciting way to celebrate a special occasion and surprise your guests with a special evening that will go down well.

Very enjoyable and relaxing experience. – mxb92151
The weather was perfect. The nature guides were very knowledgeable and very fun. Even my father in law enjoyed it and he is hard to please!

When I booked the trip, I didn’t realize we would actually get to go to one of the barrier islands. A walk on the beach was a special treat after a long cold winter. We got to go shelling and found some really nice ones. In addition, the nature guide brought up a crap trap and told us all about the crabs, letting us hold them if we wanted before throwing them back in. We also saw dolphins several times. Both the guide and the captain were friendly and informative about the history of the area and the wildlife that is found there. Due to the smaller size of this boat, it could be beached to allow us to go shelling.
